Blue Cheese usually has a tangy, piquant, spicy and peppery flavor. It is believed to have been discovered by accident. Early cheeses needed to be aged in temperature-controlled environments like caves. As it turns out, this was also the perfect environment for mold, which is the backbone of Blue Cheese. Traditionally, Blue Cheese is crumbled on top of salads or used in salad dressing. Sweet fruit, such as pears, apples, peaches and honey, all pair extremely well with blue cheese and create a very balanced palate.
